About the Customer

For over 35 years, Feeding America has responded to the hunger crisis in America, with a mission to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of 200-member food banks and engage the country in the fight to end hunger. The non-profit is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief and food-rescue organization, feeding more than 46 million people, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors, through 60,000 food pantries and meal programs in communities.

“Anytime you’re moving a datacenter, it’s a daunting proposition which takes a lot of planning. Rackspace really came in and managed the project for us, helped us with technical expertise on the details, and helped us move 350 servers and over a petabyte of storage into the Rackspace Cloud.”
